Buying & Owning A Yacht

Owning a Yacht is the ultimate way to get on the water. For many experienced yacht charterers while the idea of owning their own yacht often appeals, the cost and time of owning and running it doesn’t. However there are now several yacht builders and management agencies located around the world who can offer a variety of ownership options, where you the client, owns or part-owns the yacht, but you receive a guaranteed charter income, and a proportion of the operation costs from the managing broker, by letting them charter it out during the times you are not able to use it.

NEW OR USED

Buy New or Used. This is often the first decision to be considered when buying a yacht. Buying a New Yacht is one of the great joys of life. The chance to create something special - in the colours and design of your choice. However, buying a used yacht is invariably less expensive, with the advantage that any 'launch gremlins' will have already been ironed out. There is no golden rule. Whatever you choose, the fact is you will be fulfilling your dream. Enjoy! CLICK THE BUTTON ABOVE TO SEARCH YACHTS FOR SALE

DISCOUNTED OWNER PLANS

A number of yacht builders and charter agents now offer discounted contract plans, where buyers can own a yacht often at a heavily discounted price, by: i) Paying a 30% -40% deposit as an initial payment, ii) Pay an interest-free monthly amount over an agreed term, then iii) A final payment at the end of the term. During this period, the broker will charter the yacht out, while the buyer enjoys between 8 - 12 weeks of use at no additional expense.

COST EFFECTIVE, TROUBLE FREE OWNERSHIP

However there are now several yacht builders and brokers who can offer a variety of ownership options, where you the client, owns or part-owns the yacht, but you receive a guaranteed charter income, and a proportion of the operation costs from the managing broker, by letting them charter the yacht when you are not able to use it.

FRACTIONAL OWNERSHIP

Fractional ownership splits the cost of purchasing, owning and running the yacht with other owners. Managed by a professional management broker, Fractional Ownership is perfect for yacht owners who want the dream of owning a yacht to come true without the hassles and waste of their hard earned capital. Most fractional ownership programmes offer between 10% - 30% ownership shares. The agent will also organise the maintenance of the yacht and charter the yacht out when not used by the owners.

Charter Your Yacht

Chartering your yacht when you are not using it, is a very attractive option for many to offset the outlay of buying it and keeping it. Chartering your yacht can be as simple as hiring it out to family and friends, but many owners appoint a broker or charter agent to handle the charter operation of their yacht. What is most important however, is that the yacht you buy is suitable for charter, something a charter broker will be able to advise on.

Guaranteed Income Program

The Guaranteed Income Program is arguably the most trouble-free charter-owner program. With this option, the buyer signs an agreement to buy a yacht and to keep it at one of the agent’s select bases around the world. Then by giving the charter agent exclusive rights to charter the yacht at times the buyer does not require it, the buyer receives a guaranteed, fixed revenue regardless of charter activity.
